A municipal body in motion.

Here in Junction City-Geary County, we have always been skilled at responding to current conditions while heading toward horizons of opportunity. Our Red Wheat, introduced to this area in the 1870s by Mennonites, still feeds the world, and now revolutionary new bio-ag hybrids are being created right here in Geary County. Today, innovation is flourishing in our school system and in industry where our bioscience sector is also growing strong.

Junction City Municipal BuildingDesigned for municipal momentum: Considering our civic progress, perhaps it is no surprise that municipal momentum is built into our governance design at both the city and county levels. Headed by a three-member commission elected from three separate districts, Geary County government is a responsive mix of elected and appointed representatives, including an elected Attorney, Sheriff, Treasurer, Clerk, and Register of Deeds. Junction City’s mayor-commissioner government is comprised of five commissioners elected on an at-large basis in staggered two- and four-year terms. Each year, the commission chooses a mayor and a vice-mayor from its ranks. Operating ethically and transparently these two governments have proven flexible and sensitive to the needs of a growing city and county, capably handling revenues, expenditures, and operational ordinances, while at the same time preparing the way for growth.

Deliberative, collaborative: It might be said that good governance is part of our DNA, in a state that led the way for the direct election of U.S. Senators as well as female suffrage. Today, Junction City-Geary County civic leaders understand that economic growth is a must. So while the commissions work closely with appointed and elected staff to ensure smooth operations in critical services including water, law enforcement and fire protection, these forward-thinking governing organizations also collaborate fully and enthusiastically in matters of economic development. The success of Junction City First, our innovative public- private economic development partnership, is a reflection of a united municipal body in motion, staying in motion, providing strategic civic leadership and creativity ready to work for you.
